Residents to decide residency rule

A proposed change to the Springfield town charter would give the Select Board flexibility when it hires the next town manager. The revision would alter the iron- clad residency requirement for the manager, leaving it up to the board to decide whether it’s a requirement.    


  1. i think they should leave it the way it is,the town manager should live in town,if the resident's have to live with the decisions the manager make so should the manager,to much of our money leaving town already

  2. I feel that not only the town manager, but all department heads should reside in Springfield. It seems that if they were more directly impacted by their decisions they would take more care in making them.


Please keep your comments polite and on-topic. No profanity
